The competition takes place in five European countries between 5th and 9th August 2018. Racers run one marathon course in one of the five countries each of the five consecutive days.
The racer with the quickest sum of times of all five races becomes the winner. Aid on the course is only allowed at the determined stations. There are categories for men and women regardless of age.
Partners in the TEAM category may only take turns between complete marathons. Each team member must complete at least one full marathon. Both team members may jointly participate in each of the races. The time of the better member counts in the finish. The team with the quickest sum of times of five marathons wins.
There will be two TEAM competition categories depending on the sum of the team racers’ age, i.e. “Team up to 100 years” and “Team over 100 years”. The racer’s age in the year of the event is decisive.
The maximum total number of participants for RUN EUROPE 2018 is limited to 150.
The entry fee covers accommodation for all racers from Saturday 4th August 2018 to Friday 10th August 2018.
